What’s the word “blog” mean?

Please bear with me while I rant…

The usage of the word blog is screwed up. It means too many things. Some people say “blog” in reference to a single blog entry. Other people use “blog” to refer to a Web site that collects multiple blog entries. It’s confusing and well, honestly, referring to a single blog entry as a “blog” just doesn’t make sense.

I propose we agree to fix this issue by using the following terms:

  • Blog: A type of web site that collects multiple pieces of a type of content in one place
  • Blog Entry: A single entry in a blog (as defined above)

Now that that’s straight, you can return to your regularly scheduled reading.
